Do you ever feel sluggish during the day? Maybe you lack the drive to get through the week. Or maybe you’re struggling to stay inspired through a rough season. No matter what you are going through right now, I want to share with you 3 bible verses you may need to hear today.
Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of the, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you or forsake you.”
I absolutely love this bible verse. I think it represents just who God is to us when we are struggling with fear and doubt. Even in our hardest times, God is still walking alongside us. No matter how lonely it may seem transitioning through new seasons of life, we are still loved and cared for.
Be strong and courageous this week.
God’s got you.
John 15:11 NIV
“These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.”
I know having joy in times of hardship can often seem like an oxymoronic thing to do. When you’re going through financial struggles or familial issues, joy is often the last thing you think of.
But, that is where God comes in. See, God’s joy is sustainable even through trials. While happiness is fleeting and can literally change in an instant, joy has so much more depth.
Even through the really hard times where you don’t know what to do or how to make ends meet, you can rest in peace knowing your joy comes from God.
Understanding your emotions is an important thing to do. It’s okay to have a bad day. But it’s not okay to stay stuck there.
Try to find something that brings you joy today, even if its in the small details of life.
Romans 15:13 NIV
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
It’s what helps us keep going. It keeps us fighting and staying in the rink just a little bit longer.
Hope in God is something that we can rely on, time and time again. When everything looks bleak and you’re struggling to find answers, you can lean on hope.
God is a God of hope and that is where you can find your joy and peace.
Rest in it today.
As you go about your day, we hope these three bible verses leave you with some inspiration and encouragement.
This week, Cody and I sat down and talked about the inspiration that comes from the Bible. While there is much debate of whether or not the Bible is 100% factual. Or if we should follow every verse verbatim for our lives. However, there is still one thing we can be sure of: God speaks to us through scripture. Our question for this week is: “How does the Bible inspire you?”
